ubuntu-drivers-common (1: trusty-proposed; urgency=medium

  * gpu-manager.c, gpu-manager.py:
    - Add support for testing core alternatives. This will be needed
      by fglrx.
    - Fix a regression that caused the gpu-manager to switch to mesa
      after enabling fglrx on hybrid systems (LP: #1310489). Also
      add a test case so that we don't regress in the future.
    - Check that either fglrx or nvidia is set in xorg.conf when
      xorg.conf is needed.
    - Check if kernel modules are blacklisted before choosing the
      driver (LP: #1310489).
    - Enable only GPUs with open drivers that have connected outputs.
      Attaching to GPUs that have no connected outputs would result
      in a black screen.
    - Allow RandR offloading even without bbswitch (LP: #1349282).
    - Fall back to mesa when failing to enable prime.
    - Do not try to enable prime if the nvidia driver is older than
    - Do not abort if the settings for prime cannot be found.
      Try to create the file before failing.
